Side dish recipes

  • This distinctive salad is just the thing to get you out of a dinner rut. Tender bibb lettuce, torn and topped with avocado, ribbons of mint, and a fresh grapefruit juice dressing pleasantly startle and awaken taste buds. Especially delightful in the months of November through February, when Texas Rio Star grapefruit are in season.
  • A gratifying guacamole with a lot of bang for your buck in the flavor department! Heavy on the garlic and onion, this divine dip will boost your morale as well as your immune system! One bite and you will certainly return for more. And maybe just a little more...
  • This salad combines the wonderful flavors of jicama and avocado with refreshing citrus. However, contrasting textures make this recipe really sing. Crisp and refreshing, this salad is a great light dinner on its own, but is also perfect paired with jerked pork (or tofu) for a tropical evening at home. Mango margaritas, anyone?

  • Guacamole is certainly one of the most beloved of appetizers. This interpretation of the timeless classic uses tomatillos, which makes it a bit unique. Guaranteed to please whatever crowd you're serving!
  • This unusual flavor combination complements Asian-inspired rice and rice noodle dishes.

  • This is a classic combination of vegetables used for kimchi, the fermented side dish of Korea. Unlike traditional kimmchi, however, this dish is unfermented, which serves the needs of those wanting immediate gratification for a zippy accompaniment to any meal, particularly one served with rice or rice noodles.
  • This stunning side dish is a show-stealer. Brilliantly golden concentric rings of onion add sparkle to any plate. Baking the onions sweetens and softens them nicely, as does the addition of honey. A recipe to try at least once.
  • A perfect addition to the Thanksgiving table.
  • This hearty side is a great dish for potlucks and entertaining. The addition of Brussels sprouts transforms potato salad, a summer favorite, into something definitively autumnal.
  • This is vegetarian comfort food. The days may be shortening and the temperature dropping, but this hearty soup will get you into the warm light of the kitchen, where you will fill your home with the aromas of autumn. This soothing soup beckons to be sopped up by hunks of warm bread. Suddenly the evening doesn't seem so chilly after all. Or perhaps the house is now just extra cozy.
